Don’t mind me, I’ll just Hoot! Hoot!

I’ve held on to this image for over 2 years in hopes that I will one day use it…

vintage graduation

What’s that in my hand?

Why, it’s my very own horn.

I hate to hoot it but…


I am Oh! so very proud to be able to share with you the news that both Magzy and I are have graduated and gotten out MA.

And we kicked arse, if you don’t mind me saying 🙂

The grading standard system at Polish Universities is 2-5 and we both got a 6 and have graduated with distinctions.

It came as quite a shock as I didn’t even know that was possible and a 5 was really the top of my dreams.

For those who don’t know, I was writing my MA thesis on the subject of online communities, the Network Society, fandoms and fan labor, fanfiction in particular.


I’d like to once again thank all of those who took the time to take part in my fandom survey and to those wonderful fanfiction authors who filled out my questionnaire.

The third and final chapter was based on the analysis of how fanfic authors saw themselves with regards to notions created by media and sociology scholars and I think the reviewers felt the data was interesting enough that it could serve as a basis for publication.vintage_graduation_climbing_the_corporate_ladder_invitation-rf4cad506a8a047259c09e2d98c05e7bb_8dnd0_8byvr_512

Thank you to all of those who have rooted me on, especially Ms S who was cheering me up and cheering me on with encouraging RA images in my darkest hour.

To my dearest sister Magzy:


 It’s been a rocky road but you and I are an unbeatable team and there’s no one else I’d like to be on this or any journey with 🙂



Thanks so very much for all your comments!

Magzy was especially please with all of you mentioning her.

She was hooting so hard I had to take the horn out of her hand, the conceited cow 😉

  18. Dziewczyny, gratuluję!!! Świetna wiadomość! RAświat, który odwiedza to konkretne miejsce, jest z Was naprawdę bardzo, bardzo dumny! Tak trzymać! Czy odczułyście taki specyficznie lekki smak wolności zaraz po wszystkim? Cudowne te chwile, kiedy wiemy, że mamy jakiś męczący, choć upragniony i bardzo ważny cel już za sobą. Szanowne kobiety intelektualnego sukcesu na szóstkę, teraz w końcu czas na małe szaleństwo zmarnowania czasu, czyli na odpoczynek! Bezwzględnie koniecznie trzeba odreagować ten cały stres z różnorakim brzemieniem szarpaniny. Pomarnujcie czas dosłownie na samo zdrowie i na istotny pożytek, taki tylko pozornie bez pożytku. Najlepiej w fajnym gronie. Miłe uczucie, kiedy można zamknąć oczy, swobodnie i głęboko odetchnąć, i powiedzieć sobie: „Dzisiaj robię sobie przerwę. Zasługuję na nią! Jutro też jest dzień na dobry dzień dalszego i dobrego życia.” Tego Wam osobiście bardzo serdecznie życzę!
    (Muszę to napisać z szacunku dla Was i z miłości do moich własnych 4 sióstr: KOCHAM MIEĆ SIOSTRY i KOCHAM BYĆ ICH SIOSTRĄ!!!)
